We are living on a generation that it's all about social media. If we go out to the movie theater, a selfie to Facebook, doing a workout a picture to Instagram. I mean everything, every little thing that we do on a daily routine goes straight to social media, and who are the primary group that spends most of the time on their social media? Yes, teens. One of the most used media app that it's dominating around the world is the famous app TikTok. It has become very addictive for teens to adults. Now it feels like people wake up and immediately grab their phone to post something on social media or goes to TikTok to gain fame. Let's keep it real; this app for a lot of people has come handy. Let's take the example of the people of Hype House.

What is the Hype House?

The Hype House is the name of a collective of TikTok content creator based in Los Angeles.

The former and remaining members of the house are Hudson, Connor Yates, Alex Warren, Addison Rae, Avani Gregg, Wyatt Xavier, Daisy Keech, Rylan Storms, Nick Austin, Ondreaz Lopez, Tony Lopez, Kouvr Annon, Thomas Petrou, Calvin Goldby, James Wright, Jack Wright, and Patrick Huston.

Now that Charli D'Amelio and her sister Dixie left the house, their parents might consider starting a reality show, but who is Charli D'Amelio and Dixie?

Charli D'Amelio is an American social media personality and dancer. She has accumulated 55.1 million followers on the social media video-sharing app TikTok and has been called the "reigning queen of TikTok," by the New York Times. D'Amelio has a net worth of $3 million. She became famous for her dancing and choreography, as well as joining TikTok's Hype House collective in LA. Also, D'Amelio is the first TikToker to star in a Super Bowl commercial.

Her dad ran as a Republican for Connecticut State Senate back in 2018 and lost.

Charli, before starting her TikTok account in 2019, she was a competitive dancer and posted videos and photos on her Instagram account. Back in November 2019, Charli hosted her first meet and greet, in her home state in Connecticut. To meet Charli or take a selfie was $100 piece, fans could also learn a new TikTok dance and more. Although people weren't happy with the tag, so Charli followed up on TikTok, saying that the money from the sales would pay for the security, and the rest is going towards Carnival for a cause. Right now, the whole family is on TikTok, including her sister Dixie.

What does it take to be at the Hype House?

Well, to be at the Hype House, you have to be either talented at something, or a weird funny mix, or extremely good looking. Also, it requires constant content. It's a rule. (3 TikTok a day)

How much can you earn on TikTok?

Rumor has it that you can make about 30 to 40,000 dollars on TikTok, but the truth is you earn based on how many followers you have on your account.

After seeing so much stuff related to making money from your home, it has me a little bit confused. Now you can be famous for doing nothing exciting; you grab your phone and start living the "influencer life." Tell me, is this what we are becoming as a generation? Nothing against influencers, but people are trying to make a living, and it may be hard because they don't have the tools to get where they want to be. Instead, most of us spend time making rich others that don't contribute to the future.
